Stars: ✦✦✦
So as usual, I'll tell 4.0 things I liked about the book and 1.0 things I didn't like.

So what did I think?

+1 | The fairytale and retelling aspect is well done. I love retellings and the Prince and the Pauper is one I've loved.

+1 | Entertainment value. It went by quickly and it kept me interested

+1 | The writing and how the plot was done were both things I enjoyed

+/-1 | The characters and romance both had parts I liked and parts I didn't, and I don't know how to really explain my feelings on those.

Read on lovelies,

Stars: ✦✦✦.5
So as usual, I'll tell 3.5 things I liked about the book and 1.5 things I didn't like.

So what did I think?

+1 | The idea is different and fascinating to me, but definitely not something for everyone.

+1 | A blend of facts with also the authors voice and stories mixed in.

+1 | The order was well thought out, it made sense as a whole.

+/-0.5 | Content. It covered so man genres of content. Not all interested me and sometimes slowed it down, but there's something for anyone vaguely interested.

-1 | Not everything included was needed.

Read on lovelies,
